Columbus, GA-1.26.2016:  The Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society would like to cordially invite you to its 2016 Camellia Show Saturday, March 5 – Sunday, March 6, 2016, from 1-5pm at the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Georgia.

The show, sanctioned by the American Camellia Society, will have 20 + judges.  The judging will be led by Randolph Maphis and Clayton Mathis.

There will be many categories for growers of all levels, including novice, and many cash awards.

The Camellia Show is open to the public free of charge and spectators as well as competitors are welcome. You do not need to be a Camellia Society member to enter blooms or to attend.

In addition to viewing the breathtaking blooms entered in the Show, you may take advantage of the many exciting exhibitions on view at the Columbus Museum and take a tour of the lovely Bradley Olmsted Garden.

The Columbus Flower Workshop and LaGrange Garden Clubs will again compete in a judged flower show on the mezzanine. There will be 16 floral designs featuring camellia blooms and/or foliage.


The University of Georgia Extension for Columbus and Muscogee County will have soil testing kits and information on camellias.

According to Sam Wellborn, President of the CVCS, all blooms may be brought to the Columbus Museum loading dock between 6:30 -10am on Saturday, March 6. Those entering the Show for the first time should arrive at the Columbus Museum loading dock no later than 8:30am to make sure that you have plenty of time to enter your blooms before judging begins.  Camellia Society members will be available to help.

We would really appreciate your including this exciting event in your newsletter, magazine, or any other mail- outs you might have. We also hope that you will attend and bring friends.
